THE WALKING DEAD

The Hollywood Reporter spoke with "The Walking Dead" showrunner Scott Gimple about the record-breaking season premiere of the AMC drama and how future episodes will be paced compared to the slower force of the season's debut.

"We mix it up quite a bit," Gimple told THR. "We were starting the story, and the velocity ups quite a bit, and then it goes in a different direction, then it ups quite a bit. There are episodes that are much more frantic, and there are even episodes that are quieter. With this episode, one of the big challenges with this season was adding a story for every character. And the challenge was to start those stories all in a single episode."

ARROW

MTV spoke with upcoming "Arrow" guest star Michael Jai White about his role as Bronze Tiger and what brings the character to Starling City.

"He’s lured there by China White. She happens to know he has a penchant for testing himself against worthy adversaries, one being Oliver Queen," White told MTV. "It’s just one of those things: Bronze Tiger has Daddy issues, he needs to work them out. It’s almost like that playground thing: who’s the toughest… And he has to prove that he is. He wants to in a very real way, test himself with Arrow."

Series star Stephen Amell revealed the first photos of Caity Lotz as Black Canary via social media in full vigilante garb.

Meanwhile, GreenArrowTV has posted more photos from the episode with images of Oliver Queen, Black Canary, Felicity Smoak and more.

AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

"Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." aired a promo for its fifth episode, "Girl in the Flower Dress." Check out a guy with fire powers in the video below.

Meanwhile, series star Clark Gregg was on Larry King Now last night and gave a few more details on Agent Coulson's mysterious resurrection.

"Tahiti's a magical place," said Gregg. "I keep saying that. It's where I went to recover after I got impaled and as I say in the pilot, it was a spectacular experience. I had a beautiful physical therapist and I read Travis McGee novels all day. But any time someone mentions it lately, I seem to go into post-traumatic stress. I think there's a little more Tahiti than meets the eye. I'm hoping if nothing else that this whole Tahiti thing on the show gets me a trip there."

"I don't want to beg off that question, but I know more than the audience, but less than the writers," said Gregg. "I have a little bit, I have some hints. I know from what Joss told me roughly where we're headed, but a lot of it I don't know yet, and I'm fine finding it out as the audience does."
